Dr. Shengli Qi, Dr. Hiroki Iida, Dr. Lili Liu, Prof. Stephan Irle, Prof. Wenping Hu and Prof. Eiji Yashima Inside Cover: Electrical Switching Behavior of a Fullerene-Based Molecular Wire Encapsulated in a Syndiotactic Poly(methyl methacrylate) Helical Cavity (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 3/2013) Angewandte Chemie International Edition 52
A helical syndiotactic poly(methyl methacrylate) (st-PMMA) encapsulates C60 molecules within its helical cavity to form a supramolecular peapod-like molecular wire. In their Communication on page 1049 ff., S. Qi, S. Irle, E. Yashima, and co-workers report that sandwich devices fabricated using this helical st-PMMA/C60 inclusion complex exhibit an irreversible electrical switching effect, which results from a violent Coulomb explosion in the peapod C60 wires during the charge injection process.
